The 60th Anniversary Season
Welcome, and thank you for joining the Lake Forest Symphony as we celebrate our 60th anniversary during this 2017-2018 Season! It is truly an honor to lead the Symphony for my fourth season as Music Director.
We are presenting a full menu at each of our concerts this season that will not only highlight the wonderful history of our Symphony but also showcase new offerings, including some astounding soloists. You’ll hear masterworks by Beethoven, Vivaldi, Mendelssohn, and Dvořák, as well as gorgeous works by Rossini. We are also delighted to kick off the season with music from our wonderful Composer in Residence, James Stephenson. In January, we are incredibly excited to feature two of opera’s finest stars Nicole Cabell and Alyson Cambridge in concert with the Lake Forest Symphony. It will be an evening you will not want to miss!
As another exciting feature of our 60th anniversary, we are COMING HOME to Lake Forest for two of the five concerts this season! We look forward to celebrating a year of passionate music making together at Lake Forest Academy and the James Lumber Center.
